This tag will become obsolete if/when strengthed tags are implemented.

Otherwise this tag works nicely when the defend objective breaks the normal game flow.

This does not include "defend/escort" missions/sequences where the one you're escorting is invulnerable or otherwise less likely to die than you yourself.
